Mental Health

Taking care of one’s mental health is equally as important as taking care of one’s physical health – especially for people with diabetes. Diabetes management can be overwhelming and even exhausting at times, and can lead to diabetes distress or fatigue, depression and anxiety, and other emotional health challenges. The shame and blame felt by people with diabetes can also be particularly challenging. Thankfully, you are not alone. The most important thing you can do is advocate for yourself – find a mental health professional and the support system you need on your diabetes journey.
